Ethereum price is mostly consolidating against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD is likely to decline a few points towards $205 before moving higher.

Ethereum Price Support

After a major downside correction towards the $190 level, ETH price found support against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as low as $192 and later started an upward move. It jumped sharply above the $195 and $200 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $228 high to $192 swing low.

The price also settled above the $205 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the upside move was capped by the $214-215 zone. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $228 high to $192 swing low also acted as a hurdle. Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line in place with resistance at $216 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair needs to break the trend line and the $218 level to trade further higher. The current price action indicates that the price could correct a few points lower before it could rise back above $216.
